Wimbledon relaxes strict all-white rule so players can show support for Ukraine
The tournament is understood to have made a rare exception to its dress code, with some players wearing ribbons in solidarity.
Wimbledon is abandoning its strict all-white rule for players who want to show solidarity with Ukraine after Russia’s invasion, it is understood. Poland’s Iga Świątek, the women’s world No 1, wore a blue and yellow ribbon on her cap today in a sign of unity with Ukraine. The Ukrainian players Lesia Tsurenko and Anhelina Kalinina are also expected to wear ribbons when they come up against each other on Wednesday, June 6, 2022.
